Raggedy

This was for the latest Drawergeeks. You can click onnit for a nicer, bigger, more robust version. Honestly, I'm not sure what I was thinking here, other than perhaps trying to get Andy's life to match his name.  It's a mood piece, yeah, that's it. (more…)

Doggie Chaw

This was an illustration for a new line of doggie comestibles called, you guessed it, Pork Chomps. This was a really great project because: a) I love dogs.  b) I love dog treats.  and c) The design company and art director were awesome to work with.

Tasty

This is a new t-shirt idea for Pantelope.com. It'll probably be refined/tweaked some for the final.

Nightmare

I was just playing around with an idea for a new technique for me, where I layer a bunch of old photographs and then using layer masks slowly reveal different parts of the illustration until it's a complete image. Read on to see some, well, more. After layering a bunch of photos and adding a...

Wuv, Twoo Wuv

This illustration is more about Fay than it is about the King. I think. Well, it's about something, I'm pretty sure of that.

Cow and Buffalo

One of my favorite cartoon strips, Cow and Buffalo, is done by Mike Maihack. He asked if I'd be interested in doing some doodles of his characters in my drawing style to include in the back of one of his comic books. So I did!  I really dig these characters, I hope I didn't slaughter them too...

My daughter’s alien.

The latest DrawerGeeks assignment was to take a drawing done by a child, and then so an illustration based on that drawing. So I picked this drawing by my five year old daughter: I decided I want to do the illustration so that it looked like painted clay, while following the spirit of her drawing...

The 3D Sculpting of Taterhead Jones

Well, here's my first attempt at high polygonal count brush based 3d sculpting. Basically that means I'm building the 3d model using tools that are much more like modeling with clay.  It was fun and I'm going to start working it more into my work. Click on the picture for a zoom, and click on "more"...

More bits on En Bee Sea

Hey, tune in this Saturday, Oct. 29th at 10:00 a.m. for some more of my work with the VeggieTales episodes airing on NBC.    

Monkeys need leaves.

Here's the full illustration of Igor the monkey, as well as some of the riveting steps involved with the creation of the background. + © owned by Saputo Bakery, Inc. (more…)

Grim Reaping

For the latest halloween themed DrawerGeeks. (more…)

Ooo, ooo, ooo, lookit the monkey.

This was a character I developed for a healthy snack type treat for the Canadian equivalent of Hostess. His name is Igor. Not only was he used for the packaging and displays, but they actually made the little cake in an Igor shape as well. I have finally made the it to the confectionary height...

A little doggie doodle

No, not that kind of doggie doodle. Tch tch.    

Poor HP…

You might not be able to tell just from looking at it, but, this illustration for the last Drawergeeks was something of a breakthrough for me. Yup. The DG assignment was Harry Potter and I thought, I'm going to do a painting of Harry as if he were banished to a small midwestern satellite town....
